Our Marae Study
We read lots of myths & legends. Then we made pictures of Maui and his brothers catching the sun. We used red, yellow and black to blend. We used wool glued over the top for our nets. We discovered mixing red and yellow makes orange.
We visited a marae. We saw lots of carvings and lots of woven panels (kowhaiwhai). It was an awesome day.
We saw this awesome carving wearing a beautiful cloak.
We made our own Maori cloak using a kowhaiwhai panel & plaited paper at the top. We used leaf rubbings, hand prints and feathers to decorate our cloak.
